So, the event had a lot of speakers who had given brief introduction about what they do and what this show is about. And, and I really, really like the insights that were given in the show and how things actually work at the entrepreneurs and their experiences and everything. So I really love attending the show and I would really do it again if I'm given the chance to attend it again. Thank you.

The event is a great place to meet and network with new people. The booths are in great variety, with many, many types of vendors there to meet many different kinds of needs. I attended as an assistant to the speaker, and the service provided by the staff was impeccable. Great event.

If you're a business whose primary target audience is SMEs and startups, then I think this event is a good one for you. As it happens with most of such events where the entry is free, you will get a variety of people. Some of them who are looking at buying products and services that you are offering and you'll also get, you know, a, a bunch of people who are there trying to sell their own products and services, who will, you know, end up taking a bit of your time, trying to sell their own wares in there. So, yeah, if, if the, if this is a target audience you're interested in, then this event would be for you.

A lot of free staff visitors.
What did you like best about the event?
Exposers were the most interesting people on the show. I was able to make a preliminary agreement on a couple of potential partnerships.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
University teachers who expel students on the show should train their students that running to the booth and taking free stuff are signs of greed. The appropriate way would be to show sincere interest in the expo and, at least, discuss the show itself.

Very interesting, lots of information.
What did you like best about the event?
Variety of exhibitors and the presence of international groups promoting investment.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
No suggestions except perhaps to have areas where it was possible to sit down and rest a little; it would make the event more accessible.

Disappointing, cold with exceptionally bad service. We left at 11 pm, and the food service still hadn't finished.
What did you like best about the event?
Meeting new people, networking, and discovering new businesses in Kent.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
Turn the heating on in advance. Give notice on the menu: Haddock and Lamb are not conventional for a significant event, and because the menu was not shared in advance, there was no opportunity to ask for an alternative. Food service was slow. Starters didn't come out until 8.30. As a non-fish eater, I didn't get served food until nearly 9,30 (way too late), and dessert was only coming out as I left to get my taxi at 11 pm. Awful.
Did you have a favourite speaker or session? Please tell us below
No, but the worst was the Agricultural speaker, who was totally disengaging, and everyone spoke over him. He was just background noise.

What did you like best about the event?
I liked the feel and buzz of the event. It was nice and busy and felt like the place to be!
What could the organizers do to improve the event?

It was a busy show. We had a lot of positive conversations, and I'd be surprised if we didn't convert any of the leads into customers.
What did you like best about the event?
It was well organized, and the team was on hand to help with any queries or issues we had.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
Improved parking time slots as 1 hour isn't long—more on the setup than the show's close.
